    Ever since I updated to the latest utorrent, it takes me over a minute to connect to anything. Firefox runs slow as hell for each page load and in games. In utorrent it takes a minute to connect to any peers, but once I do my connection runs at its normal capacity. Any ideas?

    Did you change anything, such as the number of connections it tries to open at one time?

    Well, I've heard of a lot of problems with 1.7.6 so I'm going to guess you're best bet would be to wait for another update.

    The POC code on milw0rm relies on creating a malicious torrent file which the uT user opens. On any sites without public uploads, or those that clean the uploaded torrents, there is no real problem.

    Another issue mentioned on torrentfreak recently revolves around an overflow bug in extended messaging.
    When an attacker sends a long enough string for version info, and the user views the peers tab, uT will crash.

    1.6.x versions are not vulnerable to this attack, as they never display the version info obtained from extended messaging in the peers tab.
    1.7.x are vulnerable.

    Have not tested 1.8.x

    1.6.x still has some life in it yet

    This thing really screwed up my computer. I switched back to 1.6.1 and it still cant connect to peers or update the tracker, when the tracker goes to update it times out every time. And no its not my firewall.

    So you've re-added the rules in it? Just have to check since a friend of mine had a similiar problem and he had to do it and then it worked.
    What an ordinary day, the extraordinary way.
